git-wiki improved

If you want to use this fork of git-wiki, you need to know following.

First of all, it uses wiki.yaml configuration file placed in user's home directory who will run this application.

Here is an example of wiki.yaml:

wiki_repo_path  : /Users/cr0t/tmp/wiki_repo
use_ga_tracking : false
ga_account      : UA-*******-**
show_contents   : false
show_tree       : true
show_fb         : true
show_tweet      : true
show_evernote   : true
show_plusone    : true
show_last_edits : false
logo_text       : just-a-wiki
users:
  - username : admin
    password : uoWeix3c
  - username : moderator
    password : xooQu1xe

Next you need to create wiki also in the user's home directory and initialize empty git repo in it:

$ cd ~
$ mkdir wiki
$ cd wiki
$ git init

That is all! You can use Passenger or Unicorn to run this application.

To develop this fork, use shotgun gem:

$ sudo gem install shotgun
$ shotgun config.ru

Troubleshooting

If you are using UTF-8 filenames in the git repository you can get something like that "\320\257..." instead of normal filenames in the 'Latest changes' section on the main page. You need to add "core.quotepath = false" option to gitconfig file:

$ git config core.quotepath false

The text below is the original README from git-wiki project.

git-wiki: because who needs cool names when you use git?

git-wiki is a wiki that relies on git to keep pages' history and Sinatra to serve them.

I wrote git-wiki as a quick and dirty hack, mostly to play with Sinatra. It turned out that Sinatra is an awesome little web framework and that this hack isn't as useless as I first though since I now use it daily.

However, it is definitely not feature rich and will probably never be because I mostly use it as a web frontend for git, ls and vim.

If you want history, search, etc. you should look at other people's forks, especially al3x's one.

Install

The fellowing gems are required to run git-wiki:

Run with mkdir ~/wiki && (cd ~/wiki && git init) && ./run.ru -sthin -p4567 and point your browser at http://0.0.0.0:4567/. Enjoy!

Quotes

[...] the first wiki engine I'd consider worth using for my own projects.

Oh, it looks like Git Wiki may be the starting point for what I need...

Tom Morris on "How to build the perfect wiki"

What makes git-wiki so cool is because it is backed by a git store, you can clone your wiki just like you could any other git repository. I’ve always wanted a wiki that I could a.) pull offline when I didn’t have access to the Internets and b.) edit (perhaps in bulk) in my favorite text editor. git-wiki allows both.

Cloning your wiki

Numerous people have written diff and merge systems for wikis; TWiki even uses RCS. If they used git instead, the repository would be tiny, and you could make a personal copy of the entire wiki to take on the plane with you, then sync your changes back when you're done.

Git is the next Unix
